John Hughes, RIP

Anyone who came of age in the Eighties knows well his work: Ferris Bueller's Day Off; The Breakfast Club; Sixteen Candles. Children today still love his Home Alone movies. For many, his movies marked their own passing from youth into young adulthood. Many were, and remain, classics of the movie genre which, in literature, is called bildungsroman.

John Hughes, taken too soon from us at age 59, in New York.
